Globeducate students achieve 35.2 global point average in IB Diploma, with more than 60% achieved as Bilingual Diplomas
Globeducate, one of the world’s leading bilingual, international and online school groups with schools in nine countries, today celebrated outstanding results in the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme for the 2020/21 academic year. This year is the most successful set of IB Diploma results in Globeducate’s history with an average score of 35.2/45 compared to world average of 33/45 and an overall pass rate of 98%, compared to 89% world average. 70% of Globeducate students achieved bilingual diplomas, a reflection of the group’s commitment to, and expertise in, bilingual education.
Impressively, a great many Globeducate students attained scores of over 40. In Agora Lledó International School, half of all IB Diploma students attained scores between 40 and 45 points. Students from ISN Nice, Agora International School Madrid and ICS Paris scored a near-perfect 44.
Daniel Jones, Chief Education Officer for Globeducate said: “We are absolutely delighted and incredibly proud of these brilliant results. Across the board, our schools are celebrating our best results ever and under the most challenging of circumstances, showing both how committed and resilient our students and teachers have been. Students and teachers across our Globeducate IB schools have come together as a powerful learning community; they have engaged in global events and experiences, shared innovative and creative approaches to learning and exchanged best practices. Well done to them all.
Oanh Crouch, Education Director for Globeducate, said: “When an IB Biology student is able to meet IB students in other countries and join them in an online summit about ecology and sustainability, or a geographer is able to discuss deforestation and ask questions to an expert in a WWF forum, or a history student gets to present a motion in the Model United Nations event, we observe how these real-time learning opportunities impact positively on exam and coursework success – and we see this in the results we are celebrating today.”
Olli-Pekka Heinonen, Director General of the International Baccalaureate, said: “The last 18 months have been incredibly challenging for students, teachers, and schools throughout the world as COVID-19 has undermined much of what we had come to take for granted. I salute their spirit and dedication to our shared mission: education for a better world.”
